Profile® Star Filters

For Particle Removal From Beer

Profile Star filter cartridges are pleated depth filters designed for high particle removal efficiency.

The graded pore structure enables efficient particle removal while the star pleat configuration enables reverse flushing for extended filter life.

The Profile Star filter cartridge combines the advantages of a continuously graded pore structure and a unique pleated geometry to provide an increase in effective filtration area and service life. The pleat configuration enables effective low pressure backflushing to remove surface particles and enhance filter regeneration.

The pressure drop and flow capability is comparable to competitive pleated polypropylene filters whilst also providing excellent removal of soft contaminants (e.g. gels) because of the depth of the medium.

Technical Information

The technical information provided is based on controlled laboratory tests done on typical production filters at the conditions described, unless otherwise indicated. Actual operating conditions may affect the filter's performance.

Operating Characteristics in Compatible Fluids1

 
Maximum Differential Pressure Operating Temperature
5.0 bard (72 psid) (forward) <50 °C (122 °F)
3.4 bard (50 psid) (forward) <80 °C (176 °F)
0.3 bard (5 psid) (forward) <125 °C (257 °F)
 
1 Fluids which do not swell, soften or adversely affect any of the filter components


Typical Flow Rates2


2 Typical initial clean delta p per 254 mm (10 inch) cartridge, water at 20 °C (68 °F). For liquids with viscosity greater than 1 cP, multiply the delta p by the viscosity.


Sterilization and Sanitization3

 
Method Temperature Cumulative Time
Steam Sterilization 125 °C (257 °F) 10 hours
Hot Water Sanitization 80 °C (176 °F)  
 
3 For applications requiring in situ sterilization or sanitization Pall recommends the use of Code 7 adaptors to ensure filter sealing after cooling. Cartridges should be cooled to system operating temperature prior to use.
